Tradescantia Pink Panther is a tropical houseplant known for it's small, but bright pink variegated leaves. The tiny leaves puff out and once growing, although delicate, you'll see new leaves shoot off consistently. This plant grows pretty quickly and vigorously once it starts shooting roots.

When you get the growing conditions just right for your Callisia pink panther, the cheerful plant will last for years, brightening your home or office. The semi-succulent is considered relatively rare but not impossible to find. 

They’re rather easy to propagate, too, so if you fall in love with your pink panther plant, it’s pretty easy to make another. The plant will send out long vines covered in leaves, making it quite home in a hanging basket.

However, Callisia owners should never shy away from trimming the plant when it gets too leggy. These trimmings can make new plants, but keeping the stems no longer than six to eight inches will also encourage healthy, bushy growth.
